Guiness, my little ‘gift’ of Halloween Day, 2008… has recently been quarantined to the house. He is none too pleased about it, either. But since he has aged in to an established ‘predator’… I won’t let him go out and stalk the baby squirrels and bunnies. He is their nemesis… and they are much too small to be a fair match for his determination and speed. He is reluctantly obeying the word ‘no’ when I open the door to let the dog come and go… but I can see the little wheels turning when he sits at the windows, watching the Robins gathering earthworms from the garden below.
